The World Award Committee of Islamic Humanities is proud to issue its second declaration concurring the global movement credited to a large number of scholars sympathetic to the formation and evolution of Islamic humanities through the production of varying important, fruitful and influential theories within Iranian context and in some important parts and venues of the Islam World.
In such a situation, committed and compassionate Iranian directors are expected firstly to effectively endorse the prominent Muslim theorists aiming to complete their activities at first instant.
Secondly, they are expected to put aside western and secular theories to create the needed ground and favorable field for practicing Islamic theories in the areas of administration and management pertaining to Islamic communities.
Today, Universal Award Committee of Islamic Humanities within its second annual ceremony in the vicinity of the Holy Shrine of Fatima Masumah, “Peace Be upon Her” gets inaugurated by the presence of honorable and distinguished scholar of the Shiite world, Ayatollah Makarem Shirazi. To recapitulate, the committee has decided to commemorate Ayatollah Mohamadreza Kani for his scholarly efforts due to the establishment, encapsulating and development of Imam Sadegh University (Peace Be upon Him)
Undoubtedly, Imam Sadegh School, as the first university of the Islamic Humanities, has a unique role to expand and deepen the Islamic human sciences. It is also expected to see its unrivaled capabilities in the future via sharing a huge role in the evolution and giving effect to the Islamic humanities. However, the Committee failed to recognize and appreciate the great accomplishments of this great scholar during his prolific life time.
Today, unfortunately, we recognize the high scientific and managerial status of Ayatollah Mahdavi Kani while he is no longer among us.
God bless him, we do commemorate his life time endeavors and in the hope that his decisive followers also take his glorification path and stay the course with a resolute will.
The world Award Committee of Islamic Humanities was faced with dozens of prominent and influential theorists in Iran and the Muslim world and thereby, experienced a difficult and complicated circumstance to nominate the best and most influential theorists. Ultimately, blessed by the divine help and having examined multi-stage selection criteria bylaws, the system has nominated three of theorists worthy of recognition in this period:
